Hi, Ghost! Vilkommen!
My mother didn't fail us. She may've not've been perfect, but she was as good as she could be. One of hers is almost a professional engineer, another is a year out from graduating as an engineer, and the third is possibly finally finding her path.
Thank y'all for your comments, especially all the "Mom wasn't perfect, but she didn't do as bad as I thought" ones. I'm glad I'm not the only one who made that trek.
Lunch was Texas Spring Rolls: leftover chipotle chicken, garlic sausage, carrot strips, jalapeno strips, and cherry tomatoes wrapped up in lettuce leaves.
